We absolutely loved this trip! Well organised and thoroughly professional. And as for the views over the Whitsundays and the Reef… no words adequate to describe. Would highly recommend.

Even though I can’t fly to the reef due to bad weather, the company refunded us and we got complimentary champagne. Our pilot is really great and friendly. Recommended

Being able to experience the Whitsunday islands from an aerial perspective was awesome. The pilot was very knowledgable and provided opportunity for photos.

Most amazing trip. Spectacular from start to finish. Would recommend . A bucket list trip

Fantastic highlight in our once-in-a-lifetime Australia holiday.
